Well.. returning from the nordlands I found a neat surprise on my bed =)

From the outside it looks really cool.. glossy surfaces, round edges with sharp sides



There comes a lot of stuff with it... remote, a little notebook, a cleaning cloth. Plus the contest extras, like corel video and the king fu panda dvd :D
It also has an empty bay in case you wanna remove the cd drive (so its lighter when you travel, or in case you wanna add another HD)
Also, the cd drive supports lightscribe technology. Haven't tried it yet, but seems cool.



Comes with vista home premium x64 edition (which makes sense since it has 4gb of ram).
The rest of the hardware is a 2ghz core 2 duo, p45 mobile chipset with the usual stuff (wifi, hd audio, etc.), a dvd burner and a 320gb hard disk.
It's cool that it has vga and hdmi, tho it only has 2 usb plugs, which doesn't seem so great.



She shines when she's on ;)



I've installed the windows 7 beta. So far it works great, except i can't install the windows live suite (im sure its not the laptop's fault tho).
The system rating is 4.1, thanks to the onboard graphics. Everything else is around 5.1.
Pretty impressive for a laptop



When my dad opened it, he couldn't believe it. It sure is one hell of a machine.
To HP, Buzz corps, EP and everyone at OSNN... you all rock more than its healthy! =)
thanks, gracias, takk (or tack or tak) and kiitos =D

Congrats EPK! My sister is deciding on her laptop and we are definitely going with an HP DV3 or HP DV4 depending on whichever one we get a good deal on.

When my dad opened it, he couldn't believe it. It sure is one hell of a machine.
That's the same way my dad felt when he saw it too! :D

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
